Women of Compassion 2017
Women Reaching for Jesus, Helping Children
More than 150 Women of Compassion members and guests gathered for the Annual Cups of Kindness event held April 1, 2017, at the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City. Generous and caring women from across the state of Oklahoma came together to celebrate what God is doing at OBHC, enjoy fellowship and shopping at vendor boutiques, and award grants to important projects at OBHC campuses.
174 women from across Oklahoma came together to fill TWO cups on kindness in 2017. More
When the time came to cast the vote, two very pertinent projects rose to the "top of the cup."
- The first $50,000 grant was awarded to Baptist Children's Home, Owasso, for a new security fence, sidewalk, and the renovation of their transitional living apartments.
- The second $50,000 grant was awarded to general fund of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children, benefiting all ministries of OBHC.
- The third $50,000 grant was awarded to Hope Pregnancy Centers to purchase Trophon ultrasound disinfectant machines, Bibles, prenatal books, and other educational materials.
- The remaining $24,000 was awarded to the general fund of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children.
"Thank you to all our members who made this a special time of fellowship and helping children," said Women of Compassion Coordinator, Shonda Flowers. "When the grants are awarded, I am so excited to see how they'll affect the residents on our campuses and clients who visit our pregnancy centers. These women are truly a blessing to children living at OBHC. I can only dream of all the good Women of Compassion will do in the future."
